Thai Immigration have filled in the details of an armed night raid earlier this week at a Chonburi hotel.

The men arrested have been named as 43 year old Joseph Mulhare and his 38 year old brother Gregory Mulhare.

Their arrest followed a cat and mouse game as the pair moved from Pattaya to Bangkok before they were eventually taken in at gunpoint in the early hours of Tuesday morning, this week.

The Thai Immigration website says that the brothers were wanted by the North West Regional Crime Unit in the UK who made representations to the British Embassy in Bangkok.

They are wanted on charges related to dealing in cocaine, amphetamines, ecstasy, MDMA and cannabis.

The Liverpool Echo in the UK reported that the brothers were originally from the Wirral and had travelled to Thailand earlier this month.

Thai immigration discovered they were staying in South Pattaya at The Link Hotel. They were often seen frequenting the Unique Blue Sports Bar.

They learned that they were being pursued by the Thai police and subsequently went to Room 305 at The Loft in Pratumnak Hill owned by Wirawan Luangleu.

On November 18 the pair paid Wirawan 2,000 baht to take them to Khao San Road Bangkok.

From here they went to Suvarnabhumi Airport attempting to give officers the slip. They changed taxis at the airport and proceeded to Sukhumvit Suites in Asoke in Bangkok.

At 10pm on November 19 they checked out and went by taxi to Panda Resort in Don Hua Lor district of Chonburi where they were arrested at 2.30 am the next morning.

Their visas have been revoked and they are being prepared for deportation back to the UK.

Daily News is reporting that a 3 year old child remains in a serious condition in the Sri Racha hospital in Chon Buri after being attacked by a pack of ten dogs.

It is the second attack reported in two days in Thailand. On Wednesday afternoon a young Finnish boy was attacked by stray dogs at Ao Nang Beach in Krabi and remains in the local hospital recovering from his ordeal.

65 year old Jitpirom Phoonpatanassuk says she was taking her grandson Namning to look at some coffee plants growing next door but he then ran back home without her.

Next she heard Namning screaming after being attacked by at least ten local soi dogs. He suffered cuts and bites to his entire body and was covered in blood when his grandmother got to him.

He had cuts around his head, waist, back, and left and right side of his body.

She took him to Phayathai Sri Racha hospital where doctors have been attending to his wounds. As of this morning he was still unable to move.

The neighbour initially blamed the toddler for entering his property then agreed to settle with a 100,000 baht compensation payment.

The grandmother has made an official report about the attack with Sri Racha police.

Foreign tourists being tracked down for driving dangerously in Pattaya | The Thaiger

Daily News reports that Pattaya Police are tracking down two foreigners caught on video riding recklessly in the Jomtien area, south of Pattaya.

The video clip shows the two men waiting at traffic lights before racing each other with one man splaying his legs and doing a “wheelie”.

Neither of the pair were wearing a helmet or shirts.

The Pattaya police chief, Pol Col Apichai Krobpetch, spoke to Daily News Online and said he had ordered officers to find the tourists. CCTV at the intersection and along Jomtien Sai 2 is being checked to better identify the bikes and help track down the pair.

He said they will be charged with reckless endangerment of the public and not wearing helmets. The reckless endangerment charge carries the possibility of a jail term.

Earlier this week it was announced that three Thai motorbike riders had been jailed for doing wheelies along the highway. The jail terms were suspended by the court.
